in san francisco and specifically about ucr, race reporting and ethnicity reporting. the first two slides are from that presentation just as a refresher what we talked about then and the remaining three are from this presentation. so going back what we talked about is why we were reporting the way we were reporting -- what race codes we were choosing and why, and what i wanted at that time is that we report crime by race according to the california department of justice, which is the middle box. the california department of justice requires that we report the races that you see there, and they define hispanic as an ethnicity, not a race. that's why you didn't see it as one of our race codes. you see it in order so the white house of management and budget has made a change to the race codes so they now include what you see there. white, black, american indian, alaskan, and pacific islanders -- i don't know how they occur but that's what they are currently. california department of justice is still the same that you see. the fbi is the same as that. what we agreed in the last
is that in san francisco we would continue to report race and we are required to report according to the code but we also talked about beginning to use the 19 ethnicities that we have available to us in the sheriff's system. the sheriff had a system that provided 19 ethnicities. we plan to go to that system eventually. we're currently not on it. we do an arrest card and give it to the sheriff and the sheriff enters it for us so essentially we are using their system. they produce the reports i'm going to show you. we worked closely with the sheriff to make this happen and we have the dual reporting report the codes and the ethnicities. as of october last we're we did it and we had to come back together because we were getting ones that said "not entered" and we took care of that so we are now getting pretty good statistics and that's what i am going to show you. so this is as i mentioned the bookings by race -- i should point out these are adult bookings and these are actually inclusive of both the sheriff, the police as well as 13 other agencies. lieutenant dave hardy, the sheriff i
